Entry-Level 13-Inch MacBook Pro Updated With 8th-Gen Processors, Touch Bar, Touch ID, and T2 Security Chip

Apple today announced it has updated its entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro with the latest 8th-generation Intel Core quad-core processors for up to two times faster performance. The entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro also now features the Touch Bar and Touch ID, True Tone, and the Apple T2 security chip.

Pricing continues to start at $1,299 in the United States, or $1,199 for qualifying students through Apple’s education store.

This is the first update to the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro since June 2017 and likely corresponds with the mystery FCC filing uncovered by MacRumors last week. Apple also refreshed the MacBook Air today with a True Tone display and a lower starting price of $1,099, down from $1,199.
